Editorial Reviews

Addiction Today Magazine
"A superb systemic guide to individual young people and substance use/misuse, family, peers, organisation environment, and policy....The clear style gives useful definitions of terminology, of great support to anyone new to substance misuse and its complexity. It also gives explanations on co-occurring disorders, defining what is substance use and abuse, along with exploring tolerance, withdrawal, and dependence....Reproducible worksheets aid communication in sessions with clients. The book keeps practice and theory integral, making this both scholarly and practical for nurse students or Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services wishing to develop strategies....I will recommend the book to all my CAMHS colleagues coming into contact with young people and their families where substance misuse is a factor in their care."--Addiction Today Magazine
From the Publisher

"Student substance abuse is an enormously important topic that has received massive media and government attention. But the fact remains that there are limited research-based approaches that offer practical solutions. Burrow-Sanchez and Hawken have written one of those rare books that are both scholarly and practical. This book is a roadmap to effective prevention and group and individual interventions. It is a 'must' for practicing clinicians, students in training, and substance abuse researchers."--William R. Jenson, PhD, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Utah
 

"This book is a wonderful combination of data and practical interventions for students struggling with substance abuse. It is informative, user friendly, and scientifically sound, giving school-based professionals a resource they can turn to for answers."--Carol Anderson, MEd, Educational Specialist, Emotional Disturbance/Mental Health Issues, Utah State Office of Education
 
"The authors have done a marvelous job of integrating proven prevention and intervention practices with a sound and practical theory of change. They offer an ecological approach that addresses problems and solutions in the varied contexts in which young people interact, such as schools, peer groups, and communities. Practitioners and educators will love this book, not only for the realistic information it presents, but also for its easy-to-use and accessible format. It would also be an outstanding text for courses on understanding at-risk youth, school-based interventions, and adolescent counseling strategies. I strongly recommend this incredibly useful and creative guide."--Benedict T. McWhirter, PhD, Counseling Psychology Program, University of Oregon

PsycCRITIQUES

"Provides detailed information about why some students abuse substances and builds theoretically from there to show how to develop skills that can protect students from developing substance abuse as a negative coping strategy. There are thoughtful, detailed, context-dependent explanations of substance abuse that actually consider the differences among students of varied sociocultural backgrounds, supplying different tools that can help with different problems....A particularly novel aspect of this book is its candor about the positive effects of drugs....By offering information about the types of effects that individual substances have, the authors enable teachers, counselors, and even parents to know what to expect and how to screen for substance use and problems. With the accompanying focused steps for intervention, the book will be welcome on the desk of every middle and high school counselor, psychologist, teacher, and administrator. It is commendable in its readability, allowing much-needed information to be accessible to parents and even students. It also makes for an excellent guide in preparing a middle-or high-school class on drugs and their effects....The suggestions provided in this book will bring us one step closer to understanding and preventing substance abuse in our schools....Rather than attempting to prevent use through fear-based examples, perhaps parents, educators, and counselors can read this short but compendious book and work together to instill in our children the knowledge to live a healthy and informed life."--PsycCRITIQUES
